  1. Now for the performance of the lights. I ordered the SS3 Max version and replaced the fog light lenses that comes in the kit with combo lenses. All I can say is WOW! I drove the truck 3000 miles from Idaho to Alaska right after the install they were worth every penny on that drive. The light output from such small lights is pretty amazing, I would absolutely recommend these to anyone that frequently drives in the dark and doesn’t want to add a light bar. Low Beams, morimoto LED Only SS3 max with combo lenses Lows, Highs and SS3s This is a screenshot of the fog lense that comes on this kit, I’m holding it and hinting on the wall to show the output and cutoff line. Very impressive!
  2. I wanted to check back in and update that you DO NOT have to remove the bumper to install this fog light kit! The first thing to do is turn the tire all the way to create space where you’ll be working, then remove the brace that holds the edge of the bumper to the frame (3 bolts) and remove 3-4 of the lower screws on the fender liner and pull it back to give yourself room to remove the fog assembly. Once you’ve done that remove bolts(6 I think) for fog assembly and disconnect light and slide it out. Take it to the bench follow instructions from Diode Dynamics and reinstall. Once brace and fender liner are back in turn the wheel the other way and knock out the other side. Very easy and worthwhile upgrade!
  3. Hello, Has anyone installed the SS3 fog kit on a 14-15 Silverado? Getting ready to knock them out in the next few days. I’ve seen guys say it’s easier to remove the bumper to install but I’ve also seen a review or two saying not necessary. Excited to get them on, hopefully they are as good as they seem to be! Will report back…
  4. Never saw pics of somebody with a 315/70/17 spare so here is mine. Pretty tight but fits nicely.
  5. BDS 4” with fox coilovers and rear leaf pack. 35x12.50r17 BFG KM3 17x9 +1mm Fuel Shok D665 3.42 gears
  6. It’s been an awesome truck thus far, cant believe I’ve owned it for over 5 years already. I have a few more mods planned and will post them here whenever they get done!
  7. I had my brothers shop install the lift. Got a great deal on these slightly used muds too. Only had about 2000 miles and I got them for $500! 35x12.50r17 BFG KM3 Fuel Shok D665 17x9 +1mm offset Fox coilovers going on!
  8. This brings me to my most recent modifications a BDS 4” lift with coilovers and 35s! I opted for the rear leaf pack instead of a block and so far I’m really glad I did. The thing rides like a dream! And surprisingly doesn’t rub one bit after a small trim to the valance. I also added little things like LED fog lights and projector specific LED low beams from The Retrofit Source. And I had the front windows tinted to match. Ceramic tint is the way to go! My brother also details it for me a couple times a year. This is after a wash clay bar and Adams h20 guard and gloss, wow! ?
  9. About a year after that I needed more room in the bed so I ditched the tonneau cover and purchased a Leer 100XR shell. It’s perfect.
  10. I bought this truck in August of 2014 from a dealer in Milwaukee. It had 8k miles and the previous owner had custom ordered it used it for 6 months then turned around and traded it in for same thing but 2500 with a Duramax. This is its journey.... The truck also did really impressive burnouts for being completely stock, this one was into 3rd gear A few months after I bought it I started with upgrades. First was a rolling tonneau cover. Didn’t love it but it worked. I wanted more power from it and chose a set of Doug Thorley tri-y headers and catless y pipe.  Had a little issue with y pipe not being the right size for 6.2s catback, welded factory flange onto the y pipe and it works great! Plus they look sweet! At the same time as this I also bought a Diablo inTune, it paired alright with the headers but didn’t have the parameters in it to tune out cats so I had to have someone do that for me. The truck did have some pretty amazing fuel economy though. This tank was hand calculated 24.5!! I drove the truck like this for a couple years but did a few minor things, one was an MIT tube and the other a custom tune from DiabLew. Trans tuning was biggest improvement by Lew.
  11. I did some searching around but haven’t seen a pic
